We ask owners and residents to make plans for each coming fire season, prepare their properties and know what they will do in an emergency, that is be ready. Once these are all done and in place it is then critical that we know day to day what the weather conditions are doing or likely to do as well as potential hazards that may effect the implementation of our fire plans.
In this section we offer a series of web links to assist you in monitoring the prevailing weather conditions and their impact on fire potential and importantly your safety. These are sites that keep you up to date with the fire situations, fire declarations, the means to follow developing weather conditions and to know breaking conditions (like road closures). We have called the cluster of web links our "Alert Watch Directory" and the links within it are as follows:
While these connections offer good information during fire seasons they can also be used throughout the year to predict local climate events. In fact this could be your goto information site all year round. Also many of these sites have good associated information about being emergency prepared.
A good in depth back grounding to the above links on potential weather conditions can be found at the Bureau of Meteorology 3 month rolling commentary called Climate Check, it is well worth the read and watching the video to have a longer term appreciation of possible weather conditions to come.
